    Hi i was unsure exactly where to post this so i decided this sort of seemed relevant because well obviously at the minute im not exactly fit because of it.Sorry in advance it its in the wrong place

    well to let you know a little bit about me first im 26 now about 7 years ago i had a excrutiating pain in my chest and was rushed to hospital. They checked my heart and found nothing wrong so i assumed it was just really bad heartburn well about 6 months ago i felt this pain coming on and omg was it so bad.Ive given birth before and id rather go through that again.Ive had these pains quite alot since and after my bf bugging me i finally went to the doctors after alot of going bk and forward for tests they found out ive have quite alot of big gallstones and my gallbladder wall is thickened .Looks like ive had gallstones for years oops well im due to have my gallbladder removed but that could take up to 12 weeks.Ive stopped eating fatty foods as that does trigger it.

    My question is if i do have another gallbladder attack is there anything i can do to ease the pain just while i wait for my op?The pain terrifies me and at the moment all that i can seem to do is sit and wait the pain out.That can be 3 hours or more though.It is honestly one of the worst pains i have ever felt! i went into hospital because of it the other week and i was wondering if there was anything i could do at home? Please help someone thanks in advance

    I'd recommend you ask your doctor or consultant. But most likey your GP will only prescribe you drugs.

    Firstly, a hot watter bottle may help. Also, your diet is important. Look into Gallbaldder Diet.

    Another one i've heard of is Flaxseed Tea. It's meant to thin the bile out and ease the pain. Bascialy buy some whole flax seeds from the likes of H&B, boil the kettel, add a tablespoon of flax seeds. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for approx 10 minutes. Strain and drink. Have a couple cups per day.

    If your still having problems. Head for pharmaceuticals to ease your pain. Narcotics are painkillers will help gallbladder pain. Prescription wise you may be prescribed codein or dolophine. Over the counter you could get Acetaminophene or Ibuprofen but the doses will differ between the two.

    Its all very confusing, my brain wants to do one thing, but my body another, I think its due to me having short nerves in my legs ever since I kicked my height in the garden
